A (long) while back I ran the emulator and made an external GSM available in the emulator 
via bluetooth/rfcomm. Of course the sound was still on the external device, but the 
emulator was sufficiently tricked to debug at least the signalling stuff, like registering to 
a network, making and receiving calls etc.

This was at a time when OM2007 was current, so I cannot help you with the technicals :)
